Brake noise after replacement

I had brake work done over the weekend and I notice a squeal noise when I let my foot off the pedal and let cruise below 10 mph. Rear brake pads replaced. Front rotors surfaced

Are my brakes breaking in or do I need to take it back to the shop?

Take it back and be sure you show them when it makes the sound.

Took it back to the shop. After they checked it out they told me that my rear drums are warped... They showed me and they did have a slight warp. They told me they will machine the inside and if this doesn't work I need new drums which will be 170 parts and labor... They replaced the pads over the weekend I don't get it I never had this problem

We'll today the notice came back and it's worse. Squeels while I'm coasting and it feels like every rotation I feel a pull like my brake is being applied lightly... Geez

Umm, you might want to find another shop. First it sounds like they did a poor job the first time. Did they not check for warped drums the first time? Would have shown up when they adjusted the brakes, if they even did. Did they not road test it?

Now it sounds like maybe they have the rear brakes adjusted too tight.

Machining rotors and drums can in some cases correct a warp, but remember you are removing material from them to do so, so now they have less material to absorb the heat.

And if you need brake drums, do it yourself. Lot less money, and plenty of how to it's on the web.
